Once upon a time, there was a new governor. He appointed co-managing directors of a Tea-Party-sponsored political group @flca4liberty to his education transition team. Appropriate to have multiple voices represented on a committee, yes, but this group wants full control. /1
.@flca4liberty doesn't consult w/ #Florida parents. It decides for us. Its last email blast asks "Is Your School Duping You Into Buying Porn for Your Child?" (@keithflaugh & Pastor Rick, your photo expresses exactly how parents feel when we read a subject heading like this.) /2
The @flca4liberty directors explain why this matters. "... is back in session, & soon the FL Legislature will be back in session, too! So much is at stake...We need to strengthen Florida's statutes to legally protect our children from harmful pornographic materials." Porn? /3

THREAD: In honor of all our new followers, Florida Policy Institute brings you "2018 in 18 Graphs" - our most popular & favorite data visualizations from 2018 that illustrate how Floridians are faring coming into the New Year. #sayfie 1/
#18: "#CashRegisterJustice". Florida's Court System is financed mostly (94%) by fines, fees, and other legal obligations that create barriers to justice for low-income Floridians. #sayfie @FinesandFeesJC @splcenter @ACLUFL bit.ly/2R2ZMLK 2/
#17: Rural Florida relies heavily on state funding to support education & infrastructure in some of the most underserved communities. Cuts over time at the state level have disproportionately impacted rural school districts. #sayfie @FLSchoolBoards @PublicSchoolSup @FLPTA_Leg 3/

Long but IMPORTANT THREAT ON ELECTIONS IN #FLORIDA.

#BayCounty was hit by a Cat 4 Hurricane just 4 weeks ago,yet managed to count votes & submit timely results.

#Broward supervisor:
- says she doesn’t know how many ballots are left to be counted; &
- Isn’t reporting hourly or regularly,but rather releasing thousands of additional votes,often in the overnight hours,that are chipping away at GOP leads

#Broward elections department has a history of violating the law:

A court found they improperly handled votes by mail:

Court found they destroyed ballots in 2016 in violation of state & federal law:

@FLBaloney @ErikaDonalds @QualityCharters @FLLegislature 1/Privately managed charter schools will have no local oversight. Here's how you know that's the real goal of 8: 1) they're not talking about it, 2) see who's donating to the PAC Erika set up to market Amendment 8: this charter school developer...

SCANDAL #7
It’s official, FL bill HB 631 is now a law and could affect a beach near you even if you don’t live in Florida. Walton County residents were out in droves yesterday (July 1st) to protest this new law, signed by Governor Rick Scott last month.
wjhg.com/content/news/W…
This new #Florida law invalidates local municipalities' #customaryuse ordinances and effectively locks the general public out of using the best parts of Florida’s beaches—unless they can afford to rent (or buy) beachfront property. Lawsuits are pending. #standyoursand
🚫HB 631 bans local municipalities from adopting ordinances to regulate public access to Florida’s beaches above the mean water line.

⁉️But first, where’s the mean water line?

💥In short, it's where everyone wants to sit when they're at the beach.

Dear #Miami Democrats

The movement to #AbolishICE - which #FL27 candidate @matthaggman supports - isn't just a symbolic maneuver and @Ocasio2018's victory on that platform isn't just a "mood."

ICE's most important agents agree.

#TheResistance

washingtonpress.com/2018/06/29/19-…
"It says a lot about the mood in that district," former Health and Human Services secretary @DonnaShalala, a Clintonite

This is exactly what #Republican-lite looks like in #FL27

Thoughtless

Mindless

Clueless

Slavish

Obedience to the status quo

miamiherald.com/news/politics-…
#Miami voters don't need someone whose entire policy agenda is an unreasoning mood.

They need someone who will look under the hood of any problem and understand why it causes so much emotion.

And address it.

Trump broke ICE.

19 Top ICE Agents agree.
